Luke Macfarlane, best known as gay chef Scotty Wandell on the ABC series Brothers & Sisters, will star in the world premiere of Reverberation, a drama by out playwright Matthew Lopez.
Directed by Maxwell Williams, Reverberation will run February 19 through March 15, 2015, at Hartford Stage in Hartford, Conn., which previously staged Lopez’s plays The Whipping Man and Somewhere. Macfarlane will play Jonathan, a gay man who has withdrawn from society.
“In Reverberation, a personal tragedy has caused Jonathan to withdraw from the world, with little social life beyond the men he meets online,” according to press notes about the production. “When charming, flighty Claire moves into the apartment upstairs, she tries to coax him out of his shell. They forge a tenuous connection, but the past reverberates into the present, threatening what happiness they’ve found.” The play also stars Aya Cash and Carl Lundstedt.
Actor Matthew Rhys hoped to remember his lines, but when he met Princess Kate at a special lunch in New York City on Monday, he became a little lost for words.
Rhys, who stars in The Americans, was one of nine British citizens who’ve made achievements in the cultural, fashion, business and tech worlds invited to meet Kate, 32, at an intimate lunch hosted by the British Consul General Danny Lopez and his wife, Susan, at their penthouse residence.
But he confessed, “My mind went blank and I wondered what I would talk to her about, but she’s very good at putting you at ease – she asked a lot of questions.”
“I asked her what she thought of the freezing weather here, and she said she was used to it,” Rhys told reporters of their chat.
Awesome news – Ron is a guest star on Law and Order SVU this week!
If our decade-long relationship with Grey’s Anatomy has taught us anything it’s that hospitals are where romances are born.
Continuing this trend? Fox’s new drama Red Band Society, which already has not one, but two love triangles heating up in a major way in Wednesday’s all-new episode, and we’ve got your exclusive first look at all of the romance drama.
Not only will the love triangle between Emma (Ciara Bravo), Leo (Charlie Rowe) and Jordi (Nolan Sotillo) finally reach its breaking point, but Dr. McAndrew (Dave Annable), aka the hottest doctor to ever doctor on TV (Sorry, McDreamy!), will also find himself at the center of a love triangle.
Annable will be joining us at the Times’ offices on Monday at 2 p.m. PT to take part in a live video chat to discuss the new series, as well as his role as the head doc, which is in some ways based on an actual Los Angeles-based doctor (he’ll explain).
For the Red Banders out there who have a question for Annable, we encourage you to share them by using the #askLATimes hashtag, or leaving your comment on our Google Hangout page.
